BFBH - Hey Love

Hello friends!  Today is the Blogging Friends Blog Hop, we share with you on the first Friday of each month.  Our theme this month is LOVE: wedding, anniversary, Valentines, etc.  I chose to design a Valentine's card.

One of my recent, favorite stamp sets is the whimsical "Hey, Love" in our 2019 Occasions catalog.  There are so many fun animals in this stamp collection.  My design features Petal Pink and Call Me Clover inks and card stock. Of course, there is also Whisper White card stock and I used Shimmery White card stock to stamp and color my crocodile friend with our Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

Our Handwritten background stamp was a perfect choice for a love-them, since it includes the words "love" and "amour."  I discovered that the small sentiment fits perfectly in the Classic Label punch.  I tried both ink colors and then decided to make a fun "waterfall" effect to stagger them on the card front.

I also love this new variegated ribbon and that it makes such a stunning bow.  First I layered the ribbon over the front 2 layers and adhered it behind the Call Me Clover layer.  Then I attached the card front onto the card base.

I wanted my bow to lay sideways so then I tied my loose ribbon onto the attached ribbon.  Then the bow is tied and it lays sideways on the card, which will frame the stamped images as the focal points.

The other nice aspect is that you can slide this bow along the attached ribbon to just where you like.  I then used Dimensionals to adhere my punched sentiments and crocodile onto the card front.  I hope you like my bow tip and trick and would love to know if you use this on your cards?  All of my supplies are detailed at the end of my post.   

Please follow along to each of the blog participants.  I hope you discover all sorts of inspiring ideas for your love - theme projects!
